Jamie Carragher names former Manchester United star who was a ‘nightmare’ to play against

Cole spent six years at Old Trafford, scoring 121 goals in 275 appearances. He joined the Reds from Newcastle United in January 1995 for 6.25million.

Winning nine major trophies during his United career, including five Premier League titles and the 1999 Champions League crown, Cole played his part in one of the most successful eras the club has ever experienced. He also plundered north of 20 goals in three consecutive seasons between 1997 and 2000.

During his time at United, Cole scored four times against Liverpool, contributing to the tally of 11 he notched against the Merseysiders during his career. Cole built a successful strike partnership with Yorke during his time at Old Trafford, who netted north of 60 goals for United.

During the broadcast of Monday night&aposs lively Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, Carragher, alongside fellow former Liverpool player Daniel Sturridge, was reminiscing about famous strike partnerships of the past, citing Cole and Yorke as one of the best duos the league has ever seen. Even though Carragher felt Yorke was a better player than Cole, the latter was more difficult to stop.
